Thanks for your response. This should solve my issue but I only use camunda modeler to configure my workflow.


Hi @modibe,

You can implement the task listener using scripting and as external resource (script file to be deployed along with the model in a single deployment) so the same script could be reused by multiple user tasks.

Please keep in mind that each time you have a new version of your model, the new version should be deployed along with the script file.
